The Pattaya News reports that the incident happened in the sub-district of Samet, with local police notified after a man was found dead at Samet temple on Monday evening.

He was named as 47 year old Winai Promsri and his death is being blamed on drinking herbal alcohol mixed with blood from a poisonous toad. A local Samet doctor has urged people not to consume any part of an animal that would not normally be eaten.
